A man may be a pessimistic determinist before lunch and an optimistic believer in the will’s freedom after it.
Aldous Huxley


While our colleagues are in Palm Springs next week enjoying the happenings at TEDActive and, more importantly, helping to support the TEDActive  Projects, another CN cohort will be at TED 2012 Full Spectrum in Long Beach, CA.

Over the course of the four-day event, we will be moderating and scribing (graphically recording) a series of 12 lunches hosted by either TED sponsors or the TED Institute.  Each lunch will be a dialogue structured around a compelling topic, and they will be attended by a group of interested TEDsters. On the final day of TED2012, we will also be moderating and scribing a breakfast for the members of the TED Institute. The topic of that breakfast will be how to take the energy, insights and wisdom gleaned from TED2012 back into our organizations and daily lives.

We couldn’t be more excited about this opportunity, and we look forward to creating and sharing idea artifacts with you along the way.
